Royal Enfield Offers 2 Thunderbird models in India. Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350 is the lowest priced model at Rs. 1.46 lakh (Ex-Showroom) and Royal Enfield Thunderbird 500 is the highest priced model at Rs. 1.88 lakh (Ex-Showroom). The new Thunderbird, with its LED tail lamps, large 20-litre fuel tank and projector lamps, has come a long way from its previous generation. The Thunderbird is one of the most practical and comfortable motorcycles from the stables of Royal Enfield. The cruiser is powered by either a carburetted 350cc engine or a fuel injected 500 cc engine. The Thunderbird, with its features and ergonomics is perhaps one of the best for long distance motorcycling.
Royal Enfield's latest flagship model is out, and no it's not a Classic, but the all new Thunderbird 500. But does this retro cruiser have what it takes to bear the Enfield standard high and proud? We spend some long hours in the saddle to find out
